Album Notes
"Geronimo" Battalion was an Infantry Battalion of Paratroopers, 101st Airborne Division, deployed to join the 173d Airborne Brigade in Vietnam on June 6, 1966. I was part of that Battalion along with nearly 1,000 other young soldiers. In June 1967 those of us who survived returned home changed men: in short, we spent the next 40 plus years trying to forget. In June 2008 the "C" Company Commander, Jack Tarr, spearheaded a reunion of our Battalion which became a convention of healing as we shared our memories, losses, traumas, and struggles since returning to civilian life. In the fall of 2008 I wrote the words to this song in an effort to capture the nuances of passion, pain and healing that I witnessed and experienced in the presence of my beloved "brothers-in-arms". My co-writer, Larry Pearson, wrote the music in October 2013, and we began recording the "Ballad of Geronimo Battalion". My hope is that our collaboration will speak to the hearts of all soldiers of war. James M. (Mike) Adams
